Seafront homeless camp moves on

The Argus: Seafront homeless camp moves on Seafront homeless camp moves on

HOMELESS people who pitched tents on Brighton’s seafront have moved on.

The tents were spotted on Max Miller Walk, above Madeira Drive, last Thursday (June 19). Passers-by reported seeing people urinating on the floor and spitting down on to Madeira Drive.

Brighton and Hove City Council investigated reports of many rough sleepers camping along the seafront and said yesterday the numbers were exaggerated.

A council spokesperson added: “The city does experience individuals camping in unauthorised places including the seafront.

“We are grateful for the support and intelligence of the local business community.

“While we aim to deal swiftly with acts of antisocial behaviour, our actions also reflect the fact that we are also often dealing with vulnerable people with health, mental health and substance abuse problems.

“We are keeping the situation under review including stepping up patrols and prosecution where required and practical.”

Like when travellers flood onto green spaces?

These lot got moved on.....why don't the travellers get the same treatment? Is it because the tourists don't see them?

Another post in which it's clear you haven't got a clue - the report says that these people 'moved on' NOT that they 'got moved on' which rather destroys you comparison with what allegedly happens to travellers! You really should stop posting because you are not very good at it!!

Brighton Bluenose states:

"Another post in which it's clear you haven't got a clue - the report says that these people 'moved on' NOT that they 'got moved on"

The report clearly quotes a council official:

"“While we aim to deal swiftly with acts of antisocial behaviour, our actions also reflect the fact that we are also often dealing with vulnerable people with health, mental health and substance abuse problems. "

OUR ACTIONS.

The council moved them on AND it's perfectly clear that they did.

How stupid do you feel now, BB?

Where is it 'clear' that they did anything? Yet again you are stating as fact something that you think has happened NOT something that has been reported!

Brighton Bluenose asks:

"Where is it 'clear' that they did anything?"

The bit that refers to 'our actions'.

OED 'action' - "The fact or process of doing something, typically to achieve an aim"

HTH...unless you need to be told what 'doing' means.

:-)

"often dealing with vulnerable people with health, mental health and substance abuse problems."

and people who simply want to descend on the City because it's a very attractive holiday resort with a, now broadly established, reputation for welcoming travellers, protestors, alternative life stylists and sundry other welfare state dependant people.

And how about a few signs warning the public that they are entering a no-go area, which is what Max Miller Drive has been for several years, in fact?
